28 February 2005 – LAWFUEL – The Law News Network – DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary (“DLA Piper”) is boosting its work into its already successful waste, custodial and utilities sectors following the decision of PFI specialist Allison Page (nee Corry) to return to the fold.

Allison, who was at DLA from May 2000 to November 2002, has been a partner at Masons since November 2002. Allison’s recent projects include the collection, treatment and disposal of waste for Lancashire County Council, which is the biggest waste project currently undertaken. In addition, Allison has also worked for Norfolk Police on a PFI project to build and operate a number of police stations and provide transport services.

At DLA Piper, Allison will work closely with partner John Chandler to expand its national waste expertise and build on the existing capabilities in the London office as well as seek opportunities in Continental Europe. She will be based in the Leeds office and officially joins on 28 February.

Mark Swindell, Commercial & Projects practice group head said: “Our infrastructure project finance work is going from strength to strength and the group had an outstanding year in 2004 and we have closed to date 117 deals with a capital value of £9,674 billion; it is great to have Allison back and we look forward to growing our business across Europe over the next few years.”
